since the sandy hook shooting less than a month ago. joining us now is kirsten powers from the daily beast and carol roth, radio show host. start with you, kirsten. i think that the president will use an executive order to ram through restrictions on assault weapons, high capacity magazines and universal background checks, i think he'll do it and win on this one. what say you? >> well, they certainly have talks about doing that, but remains to be seen. i'm the not going to be so certain that's what he's going to do. i do want to comment on those, the things that the n.r.a. has been saying. i'm not sure what they expect the vice-president to talk to them about. they're the n.r.a. so it seems like he would speak to them about guns. it doesn't mean that he's not looking at other aspects of this, as you mentioned's meeting with the video game industry and hollywood people and hopefully a mental health component to this, but for the n.r.a. to come out and say all he did was focus on guns. when you're meeting with the national rifle association what you're talking about is guns. stuart: th
had hurricane sandy in there. you had the seasonal adjustments that recently changed how they equate the unemployment rate, etcete etcetera. so i think overall that this number has a great potential to miss. we saw a nice report out of adp yesterday morning. it really didn't have as big of an effect as you might think because of the great rally the day before. so to your point, i actually think that there's a little bit of risk that if we miss on the downside, we can be bullish here. if we miss on the sps, many of the traders are looking at a s&p future, so many people think we have to go up and test 1474.51. that would by about a 150-point rally. but -- and if you look at the volatility and the vision being at a low level, tlt a lot of the market numbers are telling us that we should rally. but, again, this number is going to be a very interesting one to watch after last month's number was a bit on the dull side. the one thing i would say is it's nice to get back to watching normality in the market rather than watching d.c. all day. >> i think we're still there. and the deal that we

to newtown. and today, sandy hook's teachers are doing what they do best-- putting the interest of their students first as they return to classrooms, providing stability and continuity that has never been so important and so needed. and then, of course, there are the families. twenty-six families that despite an unimaginable loss have gotten up each and every day since, have been there for one another, and have supported their community as much as that community has supported them. they have persevered. and in that perseverance, we all find strength. we have lifted one another up and continued on, carrying the spirit of our fallen heroes, our wounded families, and our beautiful lost children. as a state and as a community, we will continue to do everything we can for the families of newtown. but we also must ask ourselves-- what is our responsibility? to those we've lost, to one another, to our children, and to future generations? during this legislative session, we're going to begin to answer those questions together. let us do everything in our power to ensure that connecticut
surprised by the ferosity of the debate? >> the sandy hook massacre is one of the worst mass shootings in modern history. 20 school children murdered by a deranged young man whose mother had six is weapons at home knowing he was disturbed and he took those weapons and committed an atrocity. if you can't do something about the gun magnets in america after something of that magnitude. i think it is good it is trending on twitter for 36,000. it is good that people see his rant and it is good that people see the ugly side of the extreme elements of the gun lobby in america because they have had their way far too long. this is not about taking away an american family or parent's right to have a gun at home to protect themselves or a family. that is what the second amendment is about. it is not about these killing machines. and nor is it about magazines as in the case of the shooter in aurora. that is why he was able to kill so many people. then there are other issues involving the reduced funding for mental health and the gun sales in america having no background checks. it is absolute luna

important. we had to get through the hurricane sandy issue in terms of what impact that may have had. so people always make adjustments. it could be seasonal, seasonal employment numbers up or down, concerns about -- >> but will today's number be seen through the prism of the yesterday? >> i think not only through the prism of the comments of the fed coming through but against the backdrop of what we've been going through with the post presidential election, rejuvenated focus on what's going to have to happen. the concerns about the negative impacts of tightening of tax environment and spending cuts will be put against that context of what's going on in the growth environment. we've been acting as if growth has to follow behind what's been a very stimulus government both fiscally and mourn tearily and that any tightening is putting that at risk. i think any strength coming through in the unemployment numbers that we see today will perhaps take the edge off those concerns and it would be against that back drop i would emphasize it. >> it will be seen as the good news that it should be rae
frustrating, i got angry. i was so very passionate, following what happened at sandy hook, as we all were. and my position on what should be done about gun control, i've been advocating for a long time. so this to me was a tipping point. and to hear them continue to espouse this, you cannot touch any guns philosophy, i found very frustrating. with alex jones, i took a different tact. my tact was to try and show that i could be a listener, that i would give him the time to explain, articulate his position, but instead, he didn't want to debate anything or discuss it. but i found it illuminating that during his rant, you got a real sense of what an element of the more extreme gun activists in this country genuinely believe. they believe that their government will perform as a sort of tyranny and overthrow them or try to, and that is why they all need to be heavily armed. and that's what he believes. that's what his followers, to his pretty well-listened to show believe. and i think sometimes, you have to give people just enough rope to tie themselves into a large, pretty unedifying not. and

, games such as these have zero, zero connection to mass killings such as the massacre at sandy hook school, which ignited the current discussion on guns and gun violence. jay thomas, emmy award winning actor, sirius radio talk show host, welcome back to the show. good to see you. >> thank you. >> let me read something that i read here from a psychologist. this is christopher jay ferguson, writing after the sandy hook massacre, writing in "time." there is no good evidence that video games or other media contributes, even in a small way, to mass homicides or any other violence among youth. on the other hand, let me mention this, you have senator jay rockefeller leading this charge against the industry. he wants an investigation into video game violence. jay thomas, where do you come down on this? >> you know, forget where i come down on it, i have three boys and they are from 19 to 30, and they play these video games all the time. i think it is all lip service because it is so much money involved. i mean, "call of duty" did a billion dollars like in a matter of months. and so it will
